American Safari Cruises Offers New Alaskan Itineraries

InnerSea Discoveries and American Safari Cruises unveiled 2013 rates and dates for its fleet of expedition vessels and yachts. New in 2013, a refurbished Safari Legacy joins the fleet of yachts and InnerSea Discoveries schedules three Alaska Unleashed cruises.

The 88-guest Safari Legacy debuts with American Safari Cruises in summer 2013. Sailing weeklong cruises between Ketchikan and Juneau, Alaska, the vessel visits Skagway, Haines, Sitka, Petersburg, Wrangell, Glacier Bay and the remote fishing village of Pelican. On board, a Living History program focuses on the past of Alaska.

Adventurers interested in technical hikes and longer kayaking trips can choose to sail on one of three weeklong Alaska Unleashed cruises aboard the Wilderness Adventurer. On these exclusive adventures, guest capacity is reduced from 60 to 36 guests to enable a more rigorous slate of outdoor activities. Dates are June 8, July 13 and August 10. For this advanced adventure program, rates start at $5,595 per person based on double occupancy.

InnerSea Discoveries’ three expedition vessels include the 60-guest Wilderness Adventurer and 76-guest Wilderness Discoverer and Wilderness Explorer. The fleet of American Safari Cruises includes the 12-guest Safari Spirit, 22-guest Safari Quest, 36-guest Safari Explorer, 86-guest Safari Endeavour and 88-guest Safari Legacy.

From May to September, InnerSea Discoveries’ three expedition vessels offer weeklong active adventures in Alaska sailing between Ketchikan and Juneau (and reverse) or Juneau and Sitka (and reverse). With three different itineraries, un-cruises may now be combined for 15-day or 22-day adventures. Guests can embark on kayaking and hiking excursions, paddle boarding and skiff tours. Rates begin at $1,895 per person based on double occupancy. In May and September, 15-day expeditions between Seattle and Juneau (and reverse) are available with rates starting at $3,495 per person based on double occupancy.

Four yachts sail weeklong, inclusive un-cruises roundtrip Juneau from May 17 through Sept. 8, 2013. The yachts forego port calls and instead explore remote wilderness areas. Two days are spent exploring inside Glacier Bay National Park with a park ranger on hiking, kayaking and skiff excursions. Rates begin at $4,195 per person based on double occupancy. Longer 15-day voyages between Seattle and Juneau (and reverse) sail in May, August and September depending on vessel. Rates begin at $6,095 per person.

From May through August, 2013, the 88-guest Safari Legacy sails weeklong “Alaska’s Golden History” cruises between Ketchikan and Juneau, Alaska.  The vessel will then spend fall and spring sailing on the Columbia and Snake rivers roundtrip Portland, Oregon. Rates and dates will be available spring 2012.
